Judson University accepts a limited number of architecture students transferring in from other colleges and universities. Many universities and some colleges offer a pre-architecture beginning program, which hypothetically allows students to transfer into the third year of architecture at Judson. However, Judson requires all students to formally apply to the third year (the pre-professional years) of the program by February 15 each year, including transfer students. So if you are considering applying to JU, and you are transferring two years of pre-architecture program credit into JU, please note the departmental deadline of Feb 15, 2013.

Students and Parents…The economy is tough for the architecture, engineering and construction industries. Do you wonder which schools are delivering an education that translates into job prospects? Consider Judson University, the only professional M.Arch. degree program in the country in the context of evangelical Christian community. Through extensive experiential learning opportunities, Judson students are academically prepared to lead the future of architectural practice. Within the past two weeks four recent graduates have secured full time employment in architecture offices around the country; one of the four working for a community development organization improving local community. Consider Judson for architecture education in a faith-based program and context; and one that delivers an education that is unrivaled for career development.

A Saturday in Judson Architecture

Well into the third week of classes, Judson architecture students are finishing first round of papers, studio projects, and research proposals. Judson brings students to the northwest suburbs of Chicago from all over the United States. The only evangelical Christian university the country to offer a professional M.Arch. degree, Judson is THE place to study for students who want to have a career in architecture of significance and purpose. Alumni from JU are owners of architecture offices, serve in international ministry organizations and NGO’s, and work for some of the most influential offices in the world.

Judson architecture students have been designing habitat for humanity houses, working with local communities for urban redevelopment visions, designing worship environments for local congregations, and independent projects as well. Students are studying architecture precedents in their history and theory classes, studying construction technology and methods, and exploring structures and innovations in sustainable design.

It is a great start to the year at Judson University Architecture.

Danny Nelson (B.A. 2010) placed 2nd in the State of Illinois, AIA student design competition. His project, Air Force Village Chapel, was acknowledged earlier this week as one of three finalists for the competition. Danny is currently an intern with Hobbs + Black in Ann Arbor, MI, prior to returning to Judson for his final year of graduate studies in 2011/12. Danny studied under Dr. David Ogoli and Professor Ian Hoffman during the semester which this project was completed.

Judson University is the only evangelical Christian institution in the United States with a professionally accredited M.Arch. degree program. Students choose Judson because of the Christian context, excellent faculty, a delightful 90-acre campus on the Fox River 40 miles from Chicago, and the opportunity to study architecture in one of the newest and greenest schools of architecture building in the United States. Judson University and the Department of Architecture are proud of the accomplishments of our students. Great job Danny!
